I've been a part of the Sweetwater team since 2005. For the past several years, it has been my pleasure to help customers from all over the world with their pro audio and music gear needs.
Prior to joining Sweetwater, I attended the University of North Alabama and graduated with a degree in Entertainment Media Production. For a long time, I had been a musician and was playing in various bands, but during college I began to really focus on the audio engineering side of music. Today, it is my passion and knowledge for music and recording that I share with my customers when helping them select the next piece of equipment for their studio.
As your personal contact here at Sweetwater, please let me know anytime I can offer help or advice.

I was always extremely pleased with the service I received from my Sales Engineer when asking for advice and ordering equipment for my studio.
Pro Tools, Digital Performer, Apple computers, guitars, and drums
My main rig is a Pro Tools HD1 system on a MacPro, but I also use a MacBook Pro with StudioOne for writing music. I own lots of software, with my favorites being iZotope, Toontrack, and Audio Ease plug-ins. I also have several microphones, but most of my recordings are done with my Manley Reference and Dragonfly. As for instruments, I consider my favorites to be my Gibson J-45 Custom and Tama Starclassic Performer kit.

Without a doubt, my parents. They have helped make life an enjoyable experience.
Getting to know my customers and my coworkers. I am lucky to have met several fascinating people over the last several years, and I have learned from and shared lots of knowledge with a great many of those people.
When people I meet start talking audio, I start talking Sweetwater. Sweetwater is unmatched in quality and customer service. It is the personal relationship with the sales member that you don't find anywhere else. Chris Lewis is a top notch member of your team. Glad he is my sales guy!

I have always been leery about making purchases over the phone or online, but my experience with Sweetwater has been great. I have only done 2 orders(so far), but my experience with Chris Lewis has kept me coming back. He patiently answered any questions I had and was very quick in the transaction process. I will continue to do all of my shopping with Sweetwater just because of the great customer service I received. Thank you very much!

I am very happy with the professional, courteous, and helpful ethics of Chris Lewis. I hope Sweetwater realizes the kind of employee he is. I wish I had known of your company much sooner. But, I will have you at the top of my list when I need something. Thank you for your time, care, and considerations.

Chris Lewis is an exceptional person. I feel I am talking to a friend rather than a salesman. He goes the extra mile. He has solved problems for me in the past. Sweetwater is A+ in my book.

The service I got from Sweetwater and specifically from Chris Lewis is fantastic. He promptly answered my all queries during the purchasing process. I am very happy. Soon I am going to place one more order.
